Brewers fall to Astros in 9th


HOUSTON (AP) -- Jason Bourgeois singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning and Houston Astros beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Saturday night.

Kameron Loe (2-2) walked pinch-hitter Brett Wallace and Michael Bourn with two outs. Bourgeois followed with his third hit, and pinch-runner Bill Hall scored.

Bourgeois also doubled and stole two bases.

Prince Fielder's sixth homer of the season was a tying, solo shot with one out in the ninth off Houston closer Brandon Lyon (3-1). Casey McGehee singled after that, but Lyon retired the next two batters to get out of the inning.
